A Bodacious Snuffy Smith Fan!

We have family friends, Brett and Michelle Horton, who live in Rome, GA.  A few weeks ago they clipped and mailed me the front page story from their local newspaper, the Rome News-Tribune (which is a Snuffy Smith comic strip subscriber).  The story was titled “Fan Identifies With Snuffy” and it was about a local woman named Sue Davis who has clipped and collected hundreds of her favorite Snuffy Smith comic strips and placed them in a binder for over 50 years!  The first entry in her binder is a Snuffy Smith comic strip her future father-in-law gave her in 1964 about babies. He was hinting that he wanted lots of grandchildren one day!  From that point on, Sue began collecting and creating her own Snuffy Smith book collection!  Wow!  You can read the full story here.
